Happy Birthday Dear Daughter & more ABCs

Today is my beautiful DD Michelle's birthday. Happy birthday Michelle! You were a beautiful baby & you still are! I wish I could spend this day with you.

I've been feeling a bit like a mad scientist lately with the crazy stuff I've been playing with in the studio. What a mess!
I Embellished E with more Embossing powder in the background, then added some Embroidery. Thanks Anna.
Some Green Gauze jumped on with the Gold G, & the Glow-in-the-dark Glass Glob.
My sister Em thought I should add an Insect to the letter I, & what better insect than the Alaska State Insect, the dragonfly? I also Inked a few more I words on to it.
J was made from Jute. I added some Jewelry & Joy too.
Keys made K.
Lace & Leftover Lutradur made the Letter L.
Moss & Mirrors are M.
N is Needlefelting & Nuts.
O is an Ornament & Orange Oil painted dots.
P came from a Purple Paper Paint sample with Pearl Piping & a Pin.
Q is of course a Quilt. I thought about adding a Q-tip, but even I have my limits!

This afternoon we went out for a lunch at Applebee's & a movie. We went & saw the Batman movie," The Dark Knight". It was quite dark. Don't take your kids there. I like Christian Bale, but this movie seemed sadder to me. I was disappointed in the trailers at the beginning too. I had read that the next Harry Potter trailer for "Half Blood Prince" would be on with Batman, but it wasn't. It was Warren's turn to pick. Next time we're going to "Mama Mia!"

K is cool, I never would have thought of keys to make K and I really love the letter E very pretty. How do you come up with this stuff???

I want to see Dark Knight. I have actually seen a preview for Harry Potter and it looks good! Mom saw Mama Mia and liked it.

Granny Lyn said...

Your ingenuity is awesome! And I would vote for the E!

I would like to see Mama Mia, too, hopefully soon, before it goes to video...sometimes it takes me that long.

Love the "K!"

Your daughter is very beautiful. I am loving the letters you are doing--what fun! You'll enjoy Mama Mia--I saw the stage version, but I'm sure the film will be just as lively. Not sure about Meryl Streep in the role, you'll have to let me know.

Ths alphabet exercise is really cool! I love the "K" too.

The picture of your daughter reminds me of Man Ray's photograph. She is striking. It is fun to learn the alphabet right along you creating it. I love it.
Thanks for sharing once again.

Thanks mom! Sorry the machine was full! We were out of town since Thursday. We are back now and I have a tan! The beach was amazing!

Saw the Batman, was dark. I heard that Mama Mia is a great chick flick. Pearce Brosnan sings in it, I want to see it just for that.

Melodie said...

I am going to buy Mama Mia! I love Pierce! I don't even care if he can act.....he's just HOT!!
He sings in "Evelyn" Irish Pub setting.
How will the alphabet be displayed? Together?
